Antique / Vintage ??? Chinese Ginger Jar Or Vase - Nice - 13 X 9 Inches :
This belonged to my parents. They collected Asian Antiques and reproductions. I am not sure which this is. They collected a lot during the 1970's. I've attached close-up pics for your determination of age and quality. I am not a collector, but I will send additional pics upon request.
Please look carefully at the pictures, ask questions, continental USA shipping only and payment is expected upon purchase. Thank You!On Jan-23-18 at 19:41:18 PST, seller added the following information:

Update January 25 - Due to the high volume of watchers and inquires to buy with a buy it now price, I decided it would be prudent and fair to research this ginger pot more. As I said, I found it in a stored box from my parent's. They were the Asian art collectors, not me. At the time of my mom's passing, I sent some of their more valuable asian art to a well known Midwestern sale house for consignment and the items did quite well. Because of the high interest in this item and the cloisonne vase I listed at the same time, I contacted this same sale house for validity about the age of the items I was listing on . They have assured me that this ginger pot is an antique and not a vintage reproduction.
Also, I looked at the ginger pot again and it may be signed, but I can't read the Chinese characters. It may be the characters on the top cover are a signature or there is a red character under the first chinese characters on the left side. These can best be seen in pics 4 & 6. Please look carefully at these pics if interested. Thank you.
I just received an email from the sale house head asian art specialist. She describes this item as," a Chinese 19th Century ginger jar."
